Get ready to rumble
The world’s premier mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter, Ultimate Fighting Championship, will bring its highly successful brand of human combat to Singapore’s Indoor Stadium in its first live event in Asia this year. While the first few days will feature amateur MMA bouts with regional fighters in an attempt to develop local skill and enthusiasm for the sport, the final day will bring fans a fully fledged UFC Fight Night, in which some of the best fighters from around the world will enter the caged octagon. At the top of a main card filled with men is the lone women’s fight, a bout between Bethe Correia of Brazil and Holly Holm, a former UFC champion.
Where and when? Singapore, 13 June – 17 June
